Robert Richman

(19 June 1943 - 12 February 2015)

Robert Richman passed away on February 12 with his loving family beside him. Born in Brooklyn, New York, to Harold and Roslyn Richman, Robert later moved to Fairlawn, New Jersey. After serving in the U.S. Air Force and attending the Universities of Maine and Tennessee, he eventually found his way to California, where he graduated from California State University, Los Angeles, with a degree in Political Science. Shortly thereafter, he met his wife-to-be Norma. They settled in the Pasadena area, where their two wonderful children, Deborah and Jason, were born.
Robert worked for over 34 years as a stock broker and financial advisor on Lake Ave. in Pasadena. He enjoyed travel, golfing with his local buddies, and an occasional trip to the racetrack. His other passion was music, especially the "American Songbook" selections.

Robert leaves behind his wife of 45 years, Norma; his daughter Deborah Hernandez of Laguna Hills; his son Jason Richman of Redondo Beach; his son-in-law Rene' Hernandez; his fantastic grandson Evan Hernandez; and his brother Martin (Joyce) of Hollister, CA.

A Celebration of Life is to follow. In lieu of flowers please make donations to the Huntington Hospital Office of Philanthropy, the Colburn School Orchestra, or the Pasadena Symphony and Pops.

Memorial from Alan Kirsch, Lonnie Klein, Lew Kurlantzick, Ira Mendelsohn, Ian Newman, Ted Press, Bob Shapiro:

For the past thirty years we and our late friend, Bob, met regularly to laugh, reminisce and strengthen the bonds of our friendship.  Bob was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and friend, taken too soon.

Photo from 20+ years ago, because it was the last time that all 8 of us were together. In succeeding years one or another wasn’t able to attend our annual reunion. Bob was very much a central figure that everyone in our group was able to engage.  We miss him!

A great guy, and great friend of almost sixty years. We were separated by thousands of miles but when ever our  guys got together it was 1961again. We liked the same music but his ability to remember the lyrics was staggering and his sense of humor was second to none. I'm sorry I never met his family but I know he loved and was proud of them. I know he suffered, so rest in peace Bob.
